I had no idea what the fear of life meant to me until it finally disappeared and I realized just how fresh and open life could be. By "Looking At Me " I discovered that I am always here always the same regardless of circumstance. Recently this has given me the inner fortitude to face a very real reason to live in fear, that of being a Jew whose relatives went through the holocaust. This process opened a deep well of compassion and reinvigorated my creativity. I am forever grateful to John and Carla for persisting in bringing this wonderful method to all who are willing to try it. Helen Waterhouse

Since I finally recognised that I was without the fear of life my life has utterly change from hesitation and discomfort to joyfully and simply living. And this has come from the simple act of Looking AT ME that John describes. John and Carla live to share this understanding which is so remarkable successful for everyone who tries it.
I have listened to John speak since he began his work and the most remarkable thing is that he has shared his evolving understanding with us as it happened. He and Carla live just on what ever we can spare to keep this work going. It is abundantly clear that reaching as many people as possible is the motive for continuing this work.
I heartily recommend this work to everyone.

This is a great nonprofit that gives away valuable and potentially life-changing knowledge to the world, at zero cost. I discovered River Ganga Foundation almost a decade ago and have been continually impressed by their great work since then.

I give this nonprofit five stars because it has exceeded my expectations by miles. After hearing River Ganga's message I have become at home and satisfied with myself and my life in a way I never expected to be possible.

There is no longer an urgent need to fix anything or to get anything different from what I already have - be it material things, relationships or even my own psychology. Life is not a chore anymore! To say that the relief is immense is an understatement.

Before I tried their method called Just One Look I was always searching for a way to make myself feel safe and comfortable. I didn't see it at the time but I thought that if I only got what I wished for everything would be alright and I could live happily ever after. I put great stock in those ideas. But every time I got close to, or even realized those wishes, I was already busy thinking something else would do it, not even capable to fully enjoy my own achievements. It went on and on.

This works like nothing else. And I tell it from my heart that it works for everyone who tries it.

Please support this work with what you can, and don't forget try it and see for yourself if there's anything worthwhile here! It doesn't take long and you will not regret it, I promise.

I cannot overstate the joy and satisfaction Carla & John Sherman has given me, and by extention most everybody I know, and will give to anybody living on this earth willing to listen. Their message is clear, free of charge and every human's birthright to hear. It is RiverGanga's task to get it out. Please help them with what you can, there is nothing more important. Don't believe me? Take this opportunity to hear what they have to say, you will not regret it. Just one look, it really is that simple!

I had seen John Sherman almost 20 years ago on video interview with Gangaji, but I was in no way ready to begin the journey, and really did not become fully ready until the death of my wife of 25 years turned my life upside down, and forced me to become more honest with myself, in a way that now seems endless from my present point of view.

I had tried many approaches to self-healing and Self-Realization, but either did myself more harm, or felt hopelessly blocked and stuck. During a state of despair alternating with avoidance, I stumbled on the site justonelook.org. In the few months since I have been applying the practice, my outlook has begun to shift toward hope and the real possibility of recovery. My negative thought patterns do not have the grip on my attention to the degree they did, and I can see slow but steady progress toward what I think John would call "sanity".

I am grateful that both John and Carla are so accessible and giving, and that in spite of old self-defeating habits of mind, I can always find renewed understanding and encouragement on their site. Remorse and grief will no doubt continue to arise, but they will not overwhelm me as before. It's never too late for a 2nd chance.

Led by founders John and Carla Sherman, the River Ganga Foundation makes available to everyone, free of charge, a simple, direct, and powerful approach to dealing with human fear and suffering. Through their website, discussion forums, and webinars, they have created a highly supportive community through which anyone can learn this approach, ask questions, and engage with others who are doing the same. Despite the fact that thousands of people actively participate in this community, I have found John and Carla to be incredibly responsive and accessible. As a long time spiritual and intellectual "seeker", I have to say that this work is unlike any other I have encountered, and is nothing short of revolutionary.

The River Ganga Foundation is making John Shermans work for humanity possible. John has developed a deeply unique and profound understanding of why we humans end up creating such a heavy mess out of this wonderfull world that we live on. The understanding he is working to convey to us all, is ahead of the paradigms that underlies all the misery that we have been creating up to this day. Based on this understanding he has introduced a simple medicine that will change the foundation for our selfdestructive behavior. This medicine, whic is a specific and concrete act, is simple, free and available right where you are. And in my own experience, it works. It is of the greatest importance to all of humanity that John Shermans message is brought out for everyone to hear.

Why should you not support John & Carla Shermans work when they are amongst the very few who have understood the root cause and underlying mechanics of our human suffering and self destructive behavior, and they even have developed a medicine, a simple act, called "the inward looking", that will wash our human mind clean from it´s deadly malfunction, so that we humans can take part in life with all our resources and and be constructive.

My life has been gradually changing for the better after the looking. This thing is real, and as it turns out, actually only thing that puts an end to our endless need to fix something in our lives. The anxiety and ptsd symptoms i've had almost for a decade, seems to be dropping away by themselves. so what else there is to say but try it for yourself if you feel that there's more to life!

Powerful and simple message. Humble, caring, and transparent people. I am a bit sad that this insight has not spread out to the whole world yet, but hopeful that it will.
